As you may know, the United Kingdom is quite a large consumer when it comes to the infrastructure for public electric vehicle charging. It has been reported that recently has recently exceeded 6,000 locations, which is a lot if you count the fact that it is necessary for the EV driver to handle more than one solution to access different charging stations.

To every solution nowadays we will find news that a new company, via Blockchain of course, is reinventing the wheel. Such is the solution which is suppose to overcome this obstacle for EV drivers and it has been initiated by Share&Charge who invented a interoperability pilot with partners like Electric Blue, EVBox, EVDriver, Hubeleon, The Phoenix Works and Volkswagen Financial Services to test blockchain as a possible solution.

Given the situation that most of the driver have some decisive factors which they analyze during the search for a possible adoption of electric mobility, being able to charge electric vehicles easily and quickly whenever and wherever you want, could be a good argument.

This means that a seamless charging experience with unrestricted access and convenient payment solutions is essential for the technology’s success and it is clearly something to consider by many markets worldwide.

To make this work, the team at Share&Charge need to overcome the phenomenon of limited interoperability as well as cumbersome payment implementations, since each stakeholder is working on their own solution. This is also true for the United Kingdom.

Emerging blockchain technology offers a simple and easy-to-use solution that achieves interoperability when paying for electric vehicle charging and this idea might be crazy enough to work.

In a recent report, Dietrich Sümmermann, CEO of Share&Charge’s mother company MotionWerk GmbH explains: “We see great potential in this first trial and blockchain can be the crucial enabler. Therefore, we are now setting up a foundation as new entity to allow all parties to cooperate and jointly define blockchain based standards for the best of the end customer.

For those who don’t know, MotionWerk has been a blockchain spin-off of the innogy Innovation Hub whose vision it is to further support an open sourced decentralised future of energy which strongly converges with the Internet of Things, Blockchain, smart devices and e-mobility.

We look forward to the development of this world changing idea and promise to come back with more updates on the subject. Watch this space…
